A Holistic ApproachA shift from traditional to holistic will foster a more productive student, supporting their transition in becoming a contributing member of society.
Our mission is to transform the education industry’s approach to health & wellness from traditional to holistic.
An education should involve learning life skills that a person can carry to navigate their lives & careers. It should support a student’s development in becoming a well-rounded & successful member of society. Though our schools are teaching many valuable skills, our current academic curriculum does not teach or deal with children holistically. Schools do not address all the aspects necessary to succeed & thrive in life.
Holistic medicine practitioners believe a whole person is made of interdependent parts. If one part is not working correctly, all other parts are affected. In this way, if a student has an imbalance (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives – it can negatively affect overall health & academic success.
Students in our schools face continuous changes & challenges affecting their holistic balance of physical, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being.
Major changes caused by divorce, remarriage, moving, drug/physical/mental abuse, foster care, and unsupervised homes can have a large impact on youth. These major changes, along with minor changes, increase stress that students must learn to cope with.
Because of this, many students do not come to school ready to learn. Basic resilience & problem-solving skills are often missing. Many children lack the knowledge and skills to effectively deal with stress factors in their lives.
My School Nurse takes the lack of our students’ balance in consideration as we work with schools. We understand that school administrators & staff are busy focusing on the many responsibilities of their demanding roles. When My School Nurse partners with schools, we bring balance by assuring programs & initiatives support every aspect of a child’s needs.
